How to Apply

Complete The Davidson School's application for admission 

Complete The Davidson School's nonmatriculated student application for admission 

If you are seeking entry into a degree program, you should complete a matriculated application and the FAFSA. If you are interested in taking courses without enrolling in a degree program, you should complete a nonmatriculated application.

Matriculated Student Information
Matriculated MA students may apply for the spring or the fall, while EdD students may only apply for the fall. March 1 is the priority MA deadline. May 1 is the secondary deadline, and we accept applications on a rolling basis after that. Full time EdD applicants are accepted until March 1. It is in your best interest to apply as early as possible as space for all programs does fill up, and funding, though merit-based, is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

The executive doctoral program begins every other year. We will accept applications in fall 2014 for the 2015–2016 academic year. The application deadline is January 2. The spring deadline is December 1.

The Davidson School requires that all accepted applicants submit their online enrollment forms and tuition deposits by May 15. The executive doctoral deadline for enrollment may be earlier.

Merit Funding
If you are applying as a matriculated student to the MA program, you will automatically be considered for a generous Davidson School fellowship. If you are applying to our full-time EdD program, you will automatically be considered for a Davidson School merit fellowship and a living stipend.

Nonmatriculated students are not eligible for Davidson School funding. Part-time students taking 6 or more credits per semester may apply for student loans.

Nonmatriculated Student Information
Nonmatriculated students may enroll in the fall or the spring. The fall deadline is August 1 and the spring deadline is December 1.
